I had the real pleasure to watch these endangered piping plovers at High Head beach in Truro.
There is only about 4,000 of them in the world.
Now, 4,000 and 2!
Well it finally feels like spring. I’ve been so busy having fun that I haven’t made a video in a while. I just saw seven great blue herons fishing on one pond so I thought I’d put up an oldie but goodie on the Great Blues:
Dateline: First Fall weekend in 2017-
I had one of the greatest Nature Nerds weekends! On Saturday, I participated in the Bio Blitz at the Mount Tom Reservation. It was a dream come true, naturalists from all over the region came to survey all the living organism in the Reservation. Tom Tyning, the incredible naturalist from Berkshire Community College found a rattlesnake and brought it back for a check-in. Here is the full feature video of the rattlesnake. Check out my blog page for some pictures (click here)!

Featured Short- Tom Gagnon gives us a glimpse of the elusive bobcat:
This is the first in a series of video shorts exploring the wildlife of Western Massachusetts. With the help of my fellow nature nerd friends, we will focus on the natural history, as well as, how to identify their tracks in the forest, fields, and maybe in your own backyard. First up, my good friend and fellow nature nerd Tom Gagnon helps me to explore the incredible Bobcat! Check out my blog posting for pictures.
Featured Video: Butterflies of the Bullitt
There is a little piece of heaven in the hills of Ashfield, Massachusetts. Its the Bullitt Reservation owned and managed by The Trustees. Over the course of the summer, my Nature Nerd friends and I visited the fields of this incredible conservation area to chase butterflies, in order to photograph and videotape their spectacular lives. This is their story. Below are some pictures that are included in the video. Click on them to enlarge.
